Toy Review: "Generations" Combiner Wars Defensor

Toy Review: "Generations" Combiner Wars Defensor

The combined form of the Protectobots is a noble soul who was designed to protect human life. Defensor not only feels protective of humans, he wishes they could relate to him instead of fearing his great size and power. When he needs to fight, he can use his fireball cannons to melt enemies and a force field to protect anyone in a 50 foot range! Today's review brings you a look at Defensor!

Happy Anniversary to my favorite toy line ever!

in Generation One, News


About thirty one years ago (or thereabouts), I was a young kid on a trip to visit family in Montreal, Canada. As part of this trip my uncle took me to a department store (I'm sure it was a Sears, but my memory is a bit fizzy on that count). At the time I was mostly a "Star Wars" fan and as I searched through the toy store shelves I came across the "Transformers" section.

Toy News: Masterpiece Ironhide prototype pics reveal a surprise

Takara Tomy Mall has put up their listing for Masterpiece Ironhide Surprisingly instead of using color photos they have decided to show off pictures of a grey model prototype of the figure. The vehicle mode photo reveals a surprise: an extra face! This square face is based on the G1 Ironhide toy, which did not feature the head shown in the animated series. This is a real fun easter egg for fans of the original series!
